Return of a winner

Finding Nemo 3D Disney/Pixar Rating: G 100 minutes

It’s a grand old tradition at Disney to release their animated movies every few years for a whole new group of children (and adults). Now the new gimmick (so they can charge an extra three bucks) is to release them in 3D. We’ve already seen Beauty and the Beast rake in the cash this year and now it is Finding Nemo’s turn.

This is a movie that earned $340 million at the box office when it came out in 2003, and won an Oscar for Best Animated Film. The only thing to complain about is the extra dough for very mediocre 3D effects, since the film was made in 2D.

However, it is still a pleasure for everyone to watch. There’s a great story for the kids and enough adult references, humour and jokes to entertain the more mature of us. The animation depicting the undersea world is lovely. For the few who haven’t seen it; Nemo, a bright orange and white clown fish, is captured on the Great Barrier Reef by a Sydney dentist for his office aquarium. With the help of his aquarium buddies he plots to escape back to the ocean, where his father (voiced by Albert Brooks) and buddy (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) are searching for him.

If you haven’t seen it before don’t miss it this time around, if you don’t mind paying the extra three bucks to rent the 3D glasses.
